The other day I picked up some enormous white button mushrooms, about 5 cm in diameter. They called to me from the refrigerator…
I sautéed diced mushrooms in olive oil and butter until browned. I added sliced shallots and let them get happy with the mushrooms, then added diced garlic. I deglazed the pan with a shot of Lighthouse Gin and finished with crème fraîche, a knob of butter, salt, and pepper. I plated the duxelles.
I added a knob of butter in the same pan (do not rinse the pan!) and gently fried two eggs, sunny side up. I finished the eggs with salt and pepper and placed the eggs on top of the duxelles.
I cut a thick slice of home made sourdough bread and toasted it in the butter and drippings left in the pan.
